LATEST: BlackRock Global Allocation Fund Holds 43,000 Shares in Bitcoin ETF

$10.5 trillion asset manger BlackRock has escalated its commitment to Bitcoin, acquiring a substantial stake for its Global Allocation Fund, as revealed in a recent SEC filing. The investment giant now holds 43,000 shares in the iShares Bitcoin Trust, a move confirmed as of April 30.

This latest purchase marks the third occasion BlackRock has integrated Bitcoin into its internal funds, following previous disclosures on May 28. These filings unveiled Bitcoin investments in both the Strategic Global Bond Fund and the Strategic Income Opportunities Portfolio.
